Catalog Number 2009.1.33
Object Name Postcard
Scope & Content The item is a postcard featuring a picture of President McKinley's ancestral home in Dervock, Ireland on the front. On the front of the post card is written, "With love from Sydney" and also another two words that are not recognized. On the back, there is a half cent stamp and a postmark that isn't very legible. It may possibly say the date August 22, 1903 but that cannot be confirmed. The following text is also included, "I am sending you this card as I thought it might interest you We have had very wet weather since we returned." It seems to be addressed to Wm Jones (Detroit) c/o Wm Jones 36 Carlton Rd 6xton Birkenhead England.
